Hello, this is Garrett calling in for Mount Vinson expedition with Jim Lumberg and Garrett Madison. Today is January 18th and we summited Mount Vinson today! We had a beautiful summit day with the mountain all to ourselves. We are back at High Camp about to have some pad thai dehydrated meals.
Our plan is to head down tomorrow to Vinson Base Camp and hopefully soon catch a flight to back to Union Glacier Camp. It’s been a great climb so far. We just have to get down the steep fixed rope section tomorrow and down on to Vinson Base Camp.
All is well here and it’s been a wonderful expedition! This is Garrett Madison and Madison Mountaineering in collaboration with PolarExplorers.
